As much as I hate to say it I believe STO has no chance here. I mean the Blizzard Activision thing was pretty huge too plus it's probably got half the WoW people voting for them.
Shh. I'm thinking Tabula Rasa should actually win in terms of how newsworthy it was. STO appeals mostly to us that are going to vote for it. But yeah, you might be right. Blizzard has an unfair advantage in number bias.
Sorry Cryptic, but at this time STO is still vaporware to me. It's fun to chat about once in a while and maybe re-watch the trailer every couple of months. But we are well into the 21st century and for such a large project to have PR consisting of a forum, a few screenshots every 6 weeks, and "The game is expected to enter public beta testing in 2006 and to launch by early 2007" is not inspiring of trust.
we can play this game smart. the enemy may not even see us coming. rally friends, worriers, comrades. besides if numbers are all we need then lets us make them think we are bigger and more powerful then they could ever be. we need to enact the same plan that Riker did when fighting Picard and the enterprise or when Janeway was fighting the Kazon in "basics". so if numbers are what we need then numbers are what they will get. pick up some hologram emitters(hotmail accounts) and make them think we number in the millions(by flooding the vote box). they are no match for ST tactics. lol
